    HEY! Be SURE to check out the bass stories in the gallery!

    MOST kool details on all the basses. Worth the read on ALL of it!

    And check out the Hot rod restoration link as well!

    I'm not a fan of short or medium scale basses, but all I can say is "WOW!"
  11. Watch eBay or check Fender's Japan website.

    OP: Fill in the following info.


    Hours you're away:

    Please allow your outside foliage to become overgrown.

    Thank you!
  12. These aren't Jazz Basses, but there are usually a couple of Aria Pro II medium scale basses on eBay (MIJ Matsumoku). The yellow one is a rebuilt & modified 1983 CSB-300, and the red one, an '81 CSB-380, is the next project. These were both inexpensive; they aren't "high-end", but they play and sound great.



  13. Wow,

    Thanks to all for the kind words regarding my collection. Been working on it for a while.

    Yes, as mentioned if you go to my gallery site you can click on any bass and read the history with in progress photos of most of the builds - along with all the technical details.

    For those who missed it, the gallery is here:


    Pluck away fellow bassists!
